      I think that's adorable, it's a perfect way to include your daughter!

        JennaLynn, that is such a touching idea to incorporate your little one into the ceremony, and I think Amanda's idea of using a necklace big enough to slip off her neck without undoing the clasp is a fantastic suggestion.

        I am also not having a bridal party, so I can understand why you are so focused on making sure that your sister and daughter still feel special and involved. Bless your heart, and I hope everything goes smoothly and all parties are pleased!

          I really like your idea. My niece will be almost 2 1/2 years at the time of our wedding. We had already planned on her being the flow girl, but carrying the rings also is such a cute touch. I think I will have to borrow this one. Thanks for sharing!

                My sister and brother in law did this at their wedding. It was really cute and my niece felt really happy to be a part of it. She was about 5 at the time so it was maybe a bit easier. They actually purchased a necklace with a charm on it that they then turned around and presented it to her as part of their vows. It was really nice :)

                  Ladies, I truly appreciate all of your feedback on this :) I especially loved reading your additional thoughts on ways to help this go more smoothly & TamaraDan thank you for sharing your sister's experience with doing this for her ceremony...I just adore the idea of presenting the charm necklace to her as a gift/part of their vows...we are going to have to start shopping around for a beautiful necklace our little angel can have for a lifetime...she is a vital member of our little family!

                  I am SO glad I found this forum...you have all been nothing short of helpful :)
                  I absolutely LOVE my life & ADORE my little family :)

                    I'm glad you like the idea :) It really made the ceremony something special and a little different expecially for my niece. Good luck with finding a necklace for your little girl!

We have a daughter, Sienna, & at the time of our wedding she'll be 18 months old. She is already walking around & getting really good at it, fast. I was brainstorming a while ago about ways to include her, considering her young age...

                      I was thinking we could find a chain necklace & put our rings on it & have her wearing it around her neck. We could have her walk down the aisle to us (with the help of my younger sister--she's 11) I could then have my sister remove the necklace from our daughter's neck & have her give us the rings.

                      I don't know...? Does this seem corny? Or cute? I was thinking it could be a creative way to incorporate our daughter into our ceremony & also let my (only) sister play a role---she's too young to be an actual MOH...so, what do you ladies think?

                      Obviously, we'd make sure my sister or someone else is watching Sienna the whole time with the necklace on, so she doesn't end up strangling herself or anything horrific like that!
                      I think this idea is so cute! Go for it!! your daughter and sister will love those pics when they get older!
